I have these Long gangly arms That just don’t know how to hug. They’re made to keep people At least an arm’s length away. I’ve been told I suck at hugging, But the truth is I just don’t know How to hug people I don’t like. And boy are there a lot of people I don’t care for! How do I give someone who repeatedly Hurt my loved ones The same kind of hug I would give my loved ones? I reserve the great big bear hugs That show I care, and mean it, For those that need it. No, I will not give abusers my best hugs, My best hugs are reserved for my best friends: People who will appreciate awkward hugs From a skinny girl with long gangly arms Because they know what it’s like To feel like you need to force showing affection To those who don’t deserve it.
